Book Review: The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang

What can I say? The premise of the book fascinated me: grave robbing, Victorian-era medicine, immigrant, and extraordinary girl. The book was just that, but it wasn’t anything else. While the book brought up the era’s strict views of who to marry, what is proper for a woman, and how to cope when you don’t fit the bill it was only scratching the surface of those issues. The story and subject were handled with a light touch and was too romance centered for my taste. That said I have nothing against the execution. It was well-written. But I need more. I need substance and pondering, and this lightness wasn’t what I was looking for.
